Secondary Title: Forgotten Stories of Women in the Buddha’s Life

Description: In this retelling of the ancient legends of the women in the Buddha’s intimate circle, lesser-known stories from Sanskrit and Pali sources are for the first time woven into an illuminating, coherent narrative. Interspersed with original insights, fresh interpretations, and bold challenges to the status quo, these stories invite us to open our minds to a new understanding of women's roles in the Buddha's life and in early Buddhism.

"A well-researched, intelligent, and sensitive retrieval of women’s lineage stories from the dawn of Buddhism. These accounts animate the poignant, intimate lives of the foremothers on their journey to enlightenment. A welcome, much-needed addition to Buddhist literature! "—Judith Simmer-Brown, Naropa University, author of Dakini’s Warm Breath
